The 90 still matters

Although the evidence has been removed from its website, The Wine Spectator has evidently been stung by a writer who wished to find out how much effort and evaluation went into their awards of excellence for restaurant wine lists.

Robin Goldstein, author of the Fearless Critic restaurant guides, submitted for consideration the list of Osteria l’Intrepido, a fictional Italian restaurant with many poorly rated wines on its list. L’Intrepido got its own website and immortalization in the thick book of “Awards and competitions are self gratifying acts.” More on the story from Wines and Vines.
